The playback profile group definitions have never changed since they 
were introduced.

The default for someone creating a new database has been Normal since 
Normal was added.  However, due to a bug in the settings that will get 
thrown away with the rest of the settings code when settings are 
converted to mythui, CPU+ ends up selected on a new database.  CPU+ is 
one of the worst ones you could choose.

IMHO, anyone using any CPU++, CPU+, or CPU-- without any specific reason 
to do so should switch to Slim.  If that works, then they can play with 
other selections/definitions.  Feel free to try Normal, but Slim is 
basically the most-likely-to-be-useful-on-most-systems playback profile 

If you had a database that already had a chosen playback profile group, 
it did not change at all.
